Saudis on Tertiary Mission or Money-Jihad & Infiltration?

THE Saudi Arabian Government has turned to Australia to help educate its tertiary students following difficulties gaining visas for study in the US and Britain.
And the Saudis will target the nation’s universities with a $2.7billion scholarship fund.
Saudi Arabian Higher Education Minister Hussein al-Alawi will spend the next week assessing the suitability of Australian universities for Middle Eastern students, traveling to Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide accompanied by education representatives from Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.

“Historically, we used to direct our attention to the West mainly, and now I think it’s a proper time to direct our attention to the east and southeast,” Professor Alawi said. “Our main interest now is to diversify our international and cultural links with different countries.”

* Why? Isn’t the Koran enough for their education?

Professor Alawi said new barriers – established in some countries following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 – made it “very difficult in getting entry visas to some countries”.

“Meanwhile, we were witnessing more flexibility from the Australian Government,” he said.

* One would hope that the Australian Government is not too ‘flexible’

Education Adelaide – which represents Adelaide University, Flinders University, the University of South Australia, Carnegie Mellon and TAFE institutions – is leading the Adelaide leg of the fact-finding mission.

Chief executive Denise von Wald said the delegation was keen to send more students to Australia.

“They understand their relationship with the US and UK is challenging,” Ms von Wald said. “For example, it’s incredibly difficult for Saudi students to get into the US.”

* Yes, Mrs. von Wald. There is a reason for that.

Australia is the third-most popular education destination for Middle Eastern students, and Ms von Wald said the nation’s universities were perceived as “quite supportive” and providing a more tolerant environment.

“They want a secure environment for their students, they want their students who are Muslim to continue to live Muslim lives and they can do that in Adelaide,” Ms von Wald said.

“We have a reputation for being very tolerant and we have good levels of support” for students from overseas, she said.

* Indeed. We are tolerant. But THEY are not...

    The’re making you guys an offer you can’t refuse.

    THIS is a BLATANT lie! Bush just gave a RECORD number of visas for SOWdi students! Taquiyya!!!

    They’re pulling another fast one!!

    The liberals like Vonwald are eating it up hook line and sinker.

    Australians! please show up with protest banners and “prophet” cartoons during those visits by the SOWdis to your schools!!

    They’re the global polyp of islam.

  2. “They want a secure environment for their students, they want their students who are Muslim to continue to live Muslim lives and they can do that in Adelaide,” Ms von Wald said.”

    To continue to live muslim lives. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it ? And to force every one else to live muslim lives too.

    Australians, please don’t let them take over your country ! You are the only Western nation which has stood up to these brutes so far. Don’t sell out now !

  3. Why do those who are decision makers focus solely on the almighty dollar?

    Why don’t the Saudis spend the $27 billion and make their own universities?

    What they are doing is placing more people (I guessing just men) in dar al harb. All we hear about are radical imams trained at the Saudi universities bringing radical (orthodox) islam back with them and now they are letting thousands of young men into our nations who have learned this stuff from the earliest age….

    unbelievable

  4. Let the peaceful ones study in the ummah. The only thing they study in the West are targets for future mayhem and better ways to kill infidels. Enough of this nonsense already!

  5. Eve,
    The almighty dollar is their god. As they themselves are materialists, they assume that all others are too. They literally cannot comprehend that people get serious about Islam and then commit jihad. It must be poverty, or lack of opportunities, or Israel, or frustration caused by discrimination, or Israel…You get the picture.

    Good question. And another good question is why don’t they import some well-educated intellectuals to teach their kids? They can afford it. They have heaps of foreign workers.

    Because if they come here they have a foothold in our country. They can intermarry, breed, change our laws and take over like they are doing everywhere else.

  7. Why don’t they develop their own universities in their own countries?
    Oops they’ve done that, but they only educate them in Islam.

    Why don’t they spend that money on looking after their ummah and places where there is poverty.

    All they think about is themselves. God will revenge.

  8. I would say Australia say yes we will take Saudi students whatever there religion but first we require saudi to pass the first lesson.
    This is the first lesson for saudi
    Start treating non muslims as equals, start allowing men and women to walk and talk with who they like, allow other religions freedom to build churches and temples in Saudi without fear of harrasment, you must allow and protect apostates from harrasment from other members of saudi, including those that wish to leave islam, you must teach your young children that Jews are not pigs and non believers are as good as them, women must be treated as equals
    Then after you have done that,, come back in another twenty years time,
    We will then give you lesson number 2.
